Silly me

Posted By on Tue, Sep 12, 2006 at 9:05 AM

I thought when A$a went nuclear on Beebe it might be over some relevant issues like corporate influence peddling and legislative ethics lapses. Nah. If the hubbub brewing on the A$aphere is any indication -- and of course it is -- the trump card appears to be gay marriage. Of course.

There's more to come, most likely in the form of another front group, nominally independent, but financed and run by A$a confederates. Why do you think the Republican Party raised money, too, when the Decider was in town?

It's going to be a long two months, not the least because Democrats will be howling -- with ample justification in the legislative record, not to mention the constitutional amendment -- that they hate gay people just as much as Republicans do. A race to the bottom.
